Every so often a girl needs to brag just a little; you know the moment when you realise what you have completed is actually rather nice.
Recently I was in another swap, this time the swap was a mystery ... to the recipient, though for some time what I would make remained a mystery to me as well. Finally I decided on a table topper, an article that might be of some use. Knowing, from another swap, my swapee's choice of colours made the selection of cottons easy. A pattern from one of my many [I could admit to having a few plastic boxes of magazines containing patterns, but will refrain from saying what size of box] hoarded magazines provided inspiration with every stitch.
Duly completed and posted off, received and opened, allows me to show a photo of the table topper.
I will admit that the temptation to make another one for myself, and maybe as a gift next Christmas to a family member, is great.
